Gimbal fault?

Hi everyone,

I took my new Mavic Air out today for its maiden voyage.
It's my first drone so took it to an open field to get to grips with the controls etc.
Everything was going well until I tried to do a quickshot. The drone ascended correctly and when it reached the correct altitude it looked like it was starting to take the various photos needed for the shot. However, when the camera moved up, it just started twitching up and down and then a gimbal motor overload notice came up on my phone. I stopped the shot and brought it back down to me. Everything seems okay and I can't get it to fail again although I haven't tried any quickshots since. Is this just a glitch or have I got a faulty drone?

Sorry for the long winded post!

Thanks in advance.

Ben.
